Many years ago when I was beginning my family research I made contact with a relative in Victoria who I believed was my grandfather's first cousin. I had sent him a letter with a hunch that he was possibly named after the two towns in which his parents were born - Franklin (Tasmania) and Heathcote (Victoria). My guess was correct and we corresponded for several years.
One of Frank's letters dropped a bombshell. The Baumgarten family had connections with Ned Kelly. As this was pre internet days I raced off to the nearest library and went straight to the indexes of all the the books about Ned Kelly. There they were - Gustav and William Baumgarten.
My connection to this family is through my great great aunt Catherine Ellen Dawson who married Gustav Baumgarten in Melbourne on 30th November 1876.
